Long Island is one of the most racially segregated regions in the country. Isolation from one another has created fear and divisions. We need your voice in a courageous conversation that moves us forward. If you want a more inclusive Long Island, let’s work together to create change. Please find here the first of five forums held around the island from late November through early December, 2018. The aim is to inaugurate public discussions that change the narrative about racism on Long Island. We hope to highlight its long-standing structural realities and point to ways forward, by which we all may contribute to a more just island for all.
